Governor Jan Brewer should not have procrastinated about her imperritive veto of the Arizona anti gay law

"...three GOP Arizona state senators who initially ratified the measure have written to Brewer, a Republican, asking her to reject Senate Bill 1062, according to The Los Angeles Times..."

Although Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is procrastinating about her veto of an anti gay business law, the fact it, this bill shouldn't have passed at all.  It shows the right wing intolerance harbored by Brewer and others who are cut of her cloth.  

She should have immediately vetoed this horrible bill and eliminated any guessing game about her response.

If Governor Brewer were a political leader, she would've squelched this discriminatory legislation at the outset. Instead, she's now in the position of playing coy about her response to it.  

Her eventual veto should never have been debatable. The discriminatory bill shouldn't have passed in the first place.

Businesses are lashing out over an Arizona bill that would allow retailers to refuse service to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender customers based on the owners' religious convictions.

The Arizona Legislature passed the bill last Thursday, and it's awaiting Gov. Jan Brewer's veto or signature. 


While proponents say the legislation was introduced as a way to afford religious freedom to business owners, critics say it opens the door to rampant discrimination.

So, now Brewer is going to veto this terrible legislation.

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer will veto a controversial bill that would allow business owners to refuse service to gays and lesbians on the grounds of their religious conviction, NBC News is reporting via Twitter.

Brewer has been under intense pressure from business groups and political leaders to diffuse the situation and veto the legislation which they fear will draw unnecessary attention to Arizona a year before it hosts the next Super Bowl and following economic losses on controversial immigration stances.

At the same time, three GOP state senators who initially ratified the measure have written to Brewer, a Republican, asking her to reject Senate Bill 1062, according to The Los Angeles Times.

Governor Brewer obviously doesn't think for herself or she would have vetoed that anti gay bill days ago. She's like a tea bag waiting for hot water before releasing her energy. Her right wing tea bag political intellect is just plain soggy.
